This is really cool. However, I can't seem to do a working build of

roman at mercury:~/src/OpenJDK/openjdk/control/make
$ ../build/linux-i586/j2sdk-image/bin/java
-jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/demo/jfc/Java2D/Java2Demo.jar Exception in
thread "main" java.util.ServiceConfigurationError:
sun.java2d.pipe.RenderingEngine: Provider sun.dc.DuctusRenderingEngine
not found
        at java.util.ServiceLoader.access$400(
        at java.util.ServiceLoader
        at java.util.ServiceLoader$
        at sun.java2d.pipe.RenderingEngine
... (etc)

It's nice that the ductus library is removed now, but, ehem, graphics
don't work anymore ;-)

Besides this, is there a document anywhere that describes how the many
pieces of the font subsystem are playing together in OpenJDK?

Cheers, Roman
